A 78-year-old Arizona man is being held in northeast Kansas after police reported finding $828,000 in cash in his pickup truck.

Brown says a search turned up some boxes containing the cash in the bed of the pickup. Police seized the money and the truck, which had Colorado tags.

The Tucson man was booked into the Geary County jail on suspicion of speeding and transporting drug proceeds.
